THEY ARE NOT FINISHED YET: JIM AND CHRISSY RETURN TO REALITY TV

Before Yandy and Mandeecee, there was Jim and Chrissy. You can say that this couple helped pioneer the highly successful Love and Hip Hop. Jim is a rapper and Chrissy is an entrepreneur.  We first saw them on the premiere season of Love and hip Hop NY. We learned that these two are good at getting money, and loving one another. Unfortunately their love for each other hasn’t gotten them to the altar. This is WE TV comes into play. The producers at WE TV have joined forces with the hip hop couple to showcase their journey to marriage or not. Vow or Never premieres on September 1, 2016 on WE TV. Check your local listings for times. Check out the trailer below. This show looks like it is going to be a hit. Glad to see Jim and Chrissy back on the small screen again. #powercouple

SORRY CAIT: E! CANCELS I AM CAIT

In the words of the late BB King, The thrill is gone for Caitlyn Jenner and her reality TV series. E! has decided not to renew the docu-series I am Cait for a 3rd season. The series followed the former Olympian Bruce Jenner, through his transition into Caitlyn Jenner. This was a story that needed to be told, and it debuted with a huge audience. The series viewership slowly began to decline, going from the millions to just a few hundred thousand. I am pretty sure this is not the last we heard from Cait.

WENDY? WENDY? WENDY?: PEOPLE ARE MAD AT WENDY WILLIAMS

Wendy Williams is in the hot seat again. The time the gossip Queen said the wrong thing about Jessie Williams’s speech. “If I were white I would be offended.” Those 8 words has earned Wendy much shade from her former viewers. I say former because no one (black people) will forgive Wendy for what she said this time. Wendy had the nerve to question the NAACP and HBCU‘s.

Well one Wendy opened up her big mouth. The tweets started rolling in. Take a look.

WELL THAT WAS FAST: ABC CANCELS UNCLE BUCK

After a huge ratings debut, the Uncle Buck staff has found their way on the unemployment line. ABC pulled the plug on the show. Uncle Buck was a remake of the original series, but with an all Black cast. With the success of Blackish, ABC was hoping to find the same level of success. Although the ratings were not too bad, ABC just decided to cancel the series at one season. The show was good but not great. The actors have voiced their opinions on the decision via twiter.

PETITION GOES NOWHERE: SHONDA IS NOT HAVING IT

During the BET Awards Grey’s Anatomy actor Jessie Williams accepted the Humanitarian Award. While doing so he rocked the world with his powerful speech on Police Brutality. He used words like “Whiteness” while the camera panned to his interracial parents. Many were moved after the speech , but some are calling foul. Grey’s Anatomy fan Erin Smith started a petition to have Jessie Williams fired. Smith believes that Jessie speech was a slap in the face to Caucasians and police. She thinks Jessie is dividing is, instead of bring everyone together. Well creator of Grey’s Anatomy Shonda Rhimes does not agree. Check out her tweet.

Now Erin Smith have several seats.

POWER MOVES: MARC LAMONT HILL JOINS FORCES WITH VH1

Great news everybody! CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill has just been tapped to host a late night talk show for VH1. The show will be called VH1 LIVE. The talk show will air weekly. It will touch on all the latest entertainment and pop culture news. VH1 Live premieres on Sunday, July 17th at 10pm. When I was a kid the only show on VH1 was pop-up video. I am loving the way this network has evolved. There were a few shows that we could do without, but nonetheless  it looks like VH1 is starting to realize who their main stream audience is. I am looking forward to seeing what other projects they are working on. Way to go VH1.
